PaySmart leads the way in billing for Mixed Martial Arts facilities

PaySmart leads the way in billing for Mixed Martial Arts facilities
January 29, 2014

With massive recent growth in martial arts facilities across Australia, direct debit billing specialists PaySmart have been helping dojos in expanding, adapting and putting the right systems in place to sustainably manage their growth.

PaySmart Chief Executive Ian Jones says that the martial arts sector represents the company's fastest growing client base, with PaySmart having become one of the biggest billing companies in the space.

Jones explains "in a relatively short period of time the martial arts industry has experienced explosive growth and we're proud to be the billing company of choice for more than 1,000 businesses representing 25,000 martial arts students across the country

"The influence of UFC, martial arts blending into fitness programs and cross-fit training has opened up martial arts to a whole new audience of participants and all the indicators suggest this growth looks set to continue."

Jones sees that PaySmart's integrated billing and management software solutions, tailored to both large and small-to-medium sized players in the fitness industry, have made the solution the perfect choice for dojos around the country.

He adds "when you're running a business and students are your primary focus, owners have little time to deal with complicated and resource-intensive billing and debtor management systemsparticularly when they don't 'talk' properly with their management software.

"PaySmart direct debit billing is the industry benchmark, and because it's fully integrated with club management software, the whole process is seamless, real time, and available 24/7.

"This removes the stress from the process, keeps cash flow on track, debtors managed, memberships in sync, and frees up our clients to focus on what they do best.

"PaySmart is serious about maintaining our position as the industry benchmark in direct debit billing. We work closely with industry leaders such as Phil Britten and Graham McDonnell from WAIMA (Western Australian Institute of Martial Arts) to make sure we're providing the level of service our clients need to maintain their edge - we'd strongly encourage any business looking to succeed in this sector, not to settle for anything less."
